Although this may not directly relate to this particular part of Stack Exchange the general consensus is that we are building a database of knowledge so that people searching the web will be able to access the database here and find whatever they are looking for.
My issue is that these two questions are considered a duplicate. I don't mind having the question marked duplicate, but I can't see how they are?
- Why are most of the main characters Caucasian in Game Of Thrones?
- Why does everyone in Game Of Thrones have a British accent? [duplicate]
I searched this site for the answer to my question before posting:
- Why does game of thrones use British accent
- Why does game of thrones use English accent
- Why does game of thrones use English actors
- Why is game of thrones filmed in Ireland
- What is the reason for English actors in game of thrones
- Why are game of thrones characters British
When researching this question, none of my searches came up with a link to my question, hence the reason why I asked in the first place. However, now all of those links to searches only point to my question that is active now.
I tried a plethora of searches and not one links to this question or answer. In order to get to that question you nearly have to literally enter the title of the question to get to it. Suffice to say, someone searching for a reason for why a certain dialect is use in Game Of Thrones WILL NOT be directed to that question.
Searching the world wide web, any number of combinations now brings up the current question on the first page if you are looking for the reason as to why, they use British or English accents. To get anything on the other question you need to specifically have
Caucasian in your search.
I understand that linking to that question will create a carry down effect, but how on earth are these two questions even considered duplicate, in the sense of answering the questions title?
I could understand someone editing in a link to the original post to create that link, as it does in a sense provide some more clarity to the answer and I am perfectly fine with that. But I am perplexed as to how this could possibly be considered as it is.
I don't understand how closing this question is consistent with striving for a database of information that is most easily accessible via your search engine of choice?
But, if I am wrong, then that is the way things are and I will accept that too.
